5 Weeks Empty Sacs (Twins!) Afraid of Miscarriage

I had spotting/discharge and went in for ultrasound. I thought I was seven weeks but ultrasound revealed 2 empty sacs! Potential for twins!! Measuring 5 weeks. They said to early to tell and called it a threatened pregnancy. Since then the bleeding increased. For past four days and I can't see a doctor until Monday. I had cramping for 2 days and passed some tissue. I had a miscarriage in September and I so afraid of it happening again. This not as bad but I was 10 weeks with the previous mc. I am thinking the worst here. The bleeding did not soak pads but I did have to change every couple hours. Like a light period. The tissue was finger nail size with one bigger today and bleeding looks like it stopping. Positive thoughts or I am just hoping for a miracle?

Rest rest rest. I was told i had an empty sac too. But it took a few days. Before they seen anything change. Go to an e.r. if that one doesnt feel like they're helping go to another. Second opinion doesnt hurt. My ultrasound tech didnt know what she was doing

Try to rest, relax, and drink plenty of water. I had very heavy bleeding with large clots from 7 weeks 6 days to 11 weeks 5 days. Still spotting lightly from time to time... but I'm almost 16 weeks now and baby is doing great!!

Thoughts and prayers for you and the little ones. Good luck.

Since she hasn't post since January, it may have been the miscarriage unfortunately. Hopefully not, but she might not come back to let us know if it was since it might be painful.

I hope for the best and she comes back with good news
